The Provost’s Office

Dr. David McAvity oversees all of the operations of the Academic division and is the division representative at the executive administration level.

Areas in the Provost’s portfolio include

Academic Programs



Public Service Centers & Programs

The Provost is also the college's senior academic representative to several external agencies on which either the college depends (like the Washington State Interinstitutional Committee of Academic Officers, who make recommendations to state policymakers) or whose work on the national scene helps further and protect Evergreen's values and vision as a non-traditional public higher education institution.

The Provost at Evergreen performs all of his duties in close collaboration with the Vice Provost, Academic Deans, and the other Vice Presidents.

  • Trevor Speller, Interim Vice Provost
